Salo Art Museum – Lviv, Ukraine - Gastro Obscura

Lviv, Ukraine

Salo Art Museum

This cheeky restaurant has a serious devotion to lard sculptures. 

Part edgy contemporary art space, part theme restaurant, the Salo Art Museum is truly one of a kind. Salo, a Ukrainian delicacy made of cured pork fat, is staged front and center in the form of sculpted art pieces and creative cuisine.

As you walk inside, you’ll be greeted with salo-themed portraits and sculptures made of the blubbery stuff. A giant lard heart glows inside a case, while a fat-based alien rests on a table beneath the stairs. As you take a seat at the Euro club–style tables, a server will offer you a fat-heavy menu. Eat the salo sushi at your own risk, but consider a nibble of the chocolate-covered salo. If you can’t choose between art and food, you can have both with sides of fat shaped into faces, phalluses, and more.
